Guinness® BBQ Sauce

I created this sauce for my St. Patty's Day broiled lamb chops, but it turned out to be so good that I think it warrants its own post. It has a good balance of sweet and savory, but maintains the unmistakable flavor of Guinness®. My kids even liked it, which is a great testimony for an on-the-fly recipe.

1 1/2 cups Guinness® Extra Stout
1/2 cup Chili sauce (I used Heinz)
1/2 cup Brown sugar
2 Tbsp Red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp Pickapeppa sauce
1 Tbsp Honey
1 tsp Garlic salt

Add the beer and garlic salt to a medium sauce pan and whisk to combine.

Heat the pan over medium heat, add the remaining ingredients, and whisk to combine.

Simmer until the sauce is reduced by half (about 15-20 minutes) and set aside to cool.

Brush it on your carnage of choice during the last 5-10 minutes of cooking.


(makes about 1 1/4 cups)

Made this for two reasons. One Gunniess beer, and the Pickapepper. I have not used Pickapepper for years, when I saw this I had to make it. This is a great finishing sauce. Thanks for posting tjis on your site

I had to add corn starch to thicken it up. I followed the recipe to the letter, but couldn't get it to thicken. But it is WONDERFUL! Very yummy on Chicken Wings!

What can I use as a substitute for the Pickapeppa? Can't find it and want to try it this weekend.

Oriley - You can substitute 2 tsp of your favorite hot sauce and 1 tsp A-1 steak sauce.

Just made it! Improvised a little and used a local Bourbon Barrel Stout and used my favorite local hot sauce instead of Picapeppa. I also added a teeny bit of ground chipotle and a couple of tablespoons of tomato paste. Delicious!! It's a Christmas gift for my dad. I'm sure he'll love it!

this sauce is awesome. I substituted the red vinegar with apple cider vinegar. Also, spiced it up a little more with a little tapatio hot sauce. It came out awesome...perfectly thick from the recipe. nice work brother
